"What You and Your Parks Can Do Now to Help Save the Monarch" presented by Richard Dolesh

Monarch butterflies are in deep trouble.  Once found in great numbers throughout North America and much beloved for their multi-generational migration from Mexico all the way into Canada and the northern United States, monarch populations have declined nearly 95% in recent years.  But there is hope for this seriously threatened species.  This informative program will cover actions that you personally can take right now, this year, to attract, feed, and propagate more monarchs on their migration. It will also provide information on how you and your family, friends, and communities can take action as citizen volunteers working with your local park and recreation and public lands agencies. 

Whether you are already committed to the cause of monarch conservation, or if you are just learning what needs to be done, there will be much new for you to learn and new resources for you to discover how you can do more to help turn the tide for monarchs. In addition, you’ll hear some great ideas on how you and your friends can contribute to public education and conservation stewardship for this valuable wildlife species.

The February - March 2015 Bluebird newsletter is now online!

You can view
current and past issues of our newsletter, The Bluebird, on the Newsletter page.  

Welcome to the home page of the Prince George's Audubon Society (PGAS), a local chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Audubon members in the northern part of Prince George's County, Maryland.  PGAS was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization with officers and a board of directors, all volunteers, elected by the general membership.  Membership in PGAS is obtained through the National Audubon Society.  PGAS members receive our chaper newsletter, The Bluebird, and are encouraged to actively participate in chapter activities including a monthly speaker series, field trips, annual bird counts, and other special events. 

This website is for members of PGAS to keep up to date on program and field trip schedules and other chapter activities.  In addition, this website serves as a resource for non-members to find out more about Audubon and PGAS and to explore the benefits of membership.  Non-members are welcome to participate in our meetings and field trips and are free to take advantage of the local birding and environmental information on this website as well as the links to a wide range of related information available on the internet.  Of course, if you live in northern Prince George's County we would love to have you as a PGAS member, and membership information is always available.
